Pair of William IV Rosewood Arm Chairs, Ca. 1840

England Ca. 1840

An excellent quality pair of brass inlaid Brazilian rosewood upholstered arm chairs made in England around 1840.

Price

$1800 pair

Condition

Overall good antique condition. There have been some small veneer repairs, mostly to the front corners of the seat rails. The upholstery fabric is in presentable condition but the underlying webbing is stretched a bit. Some of the brass inlay is no longer firmly inset from the natural expansion and contraction of the wood over time. A few pieces of brass inlay were replaced with filler and colored like brass. The leather covered wheels of the casters have lost most of the hard leather. The joints appear to be tight.

Measurements

Antique Miniature Chinese Export Porcelain Tea Pot, Ca. 1860

This is the only miniature Chinese porcelain tea pot I have had. It has the unusual use of yellow enamel on much of the body with two reserves, one of a Mandarin court yard scene and the other with a bird sitting on a peony stem.
